We can supply and fit clincher or tubeless tyres to your wheels if you require.
 

We have strong views as to which work best - based on continuous appraisal and assessment of new technologies. We are independent - and we don't gain anything from our recommendations! We recommend what we love. That simple:
 

PRICES FOR TYRES: INCLUDE COST OF SUPPLYING AND FITTING CONTI CLINCHER TYRES/TUBES - AND HUTCHINSON OR SCHWALBE TUBELESS TYRES/VALVES/SEALANT.


We've put huge efforts into researching which tyres run best on our range of wheels. The variables we employ are: speed/ease of ownership/durability.

Our broad perspective is this:


FOR CARBON RIM BRAKE WHEELS: Go for a fast clincher tyre. 
Our recommendation: GP5000 CLINCHER TYRES  (25 or 28mm).

WE ARE NOT GREAT FANS OF TUBELESS FOR CARBON RIM BRAKE WHEELS. The forces at the rim are much higher with tubeless tyres than clincher tyres and braking performace and rim life can can both be reduced in our experience. Whilst we do see the comfort/puncture credentials of tubeless (which is great for trail riding, long road hauls, and mountain bikes of course!), we are now convinced that when riding performance rim brake wheels - the balance of speed/reliability/handling/ ease of use/ weight tips significantly in favour of clinchers! There ... we said it!!

Avoid: open tubular cotton type clinchers - Vittoria and Challenge are the most popular brands.


FOR CARBON DISC BRAKE WHEELS: Go for 25/28mm clinchers for speed. (GP5000) Or 32mm clinchers for comfort. (GP 5000 again). For max speed on tubeless front go for Schwalbe One's tubeless in 25/28mm.

Or for gravel/trail or even more comfort on tarmac: go 28/32/35mm tubeless. Hutchinson Fusion  is our go to Tubeless for this type of riding.

FOR ALLOY RIM BRAKE WHEELS

Clincher or tubeless: GP5000 clincher for max speed and ease of ownership. (25mm and 28mm). If you fancy tubeless then its Schwalbe One for speed and Hutchinson Fusion for a mix of speed/durability (25/28/32mm)

ALLOY DISC BRAKE WHEELS

Clincher or tubeless: GP5000 clincher for max speed and ease of ownership. (25mm and 28mm). If you fancy tubeless then its Schwalbe One for speed and Hutchinson Fusion for a mix of speed/durability (25/28/32mm)


 

PRICE SHOWN IS FOR A PAIR OF TYRES etc  - ALL FITTED AND TESTED.
 

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING CAREFULLY AS WE DO NOT RECOMMEND CERTAIN TYRES FOR CERTAIN RIMS!

PLEASE CHECK THAT THE WHEELS YOU ARE ORDERING ARE TUBELESS COMPATIBLE BEFORE ADDING TUBELESS TYRES TO YOUR ORDER. If you don’t see the terms “tubeless ready” or “2-way fit” listed on the product page that means the wheels are clincher only and you’ll need clincher tyres!


A note on -Continental GP5000 TL TUBELESS TYRES Whilst we love Conti clinchers, we no longer supply the tubeless version due to huge variance in quality from tyre to tyre! Some go on easily ... but others are impossible to fit! This is due to measurable size variations and bead size anomalies. And to top it off ... in our most recent batch ...every 10th tyre has incurable sidewall leakiness the entire circumference of the tyre.  Watch that sealant just gush and gush. Not great!!

A note on Open Tubular Cotton Clincher Tyres

wecdo not recommend these be used at all on any carbon rimmed wheels. Several other brands share our perspective on this issue. Notably Enve Wheels. Why? Cotton clincher technology is not designed for modern carbon tubeless carbon rims and instances of tyres failing at the rim have been reported by Enve. We've not seen any failurs on our rims but we choose to err on the side of caution!
